On track the champion wins alone. At first glance, the champion stands alone too. However, behind them is a vast crew of people performing a highly orchestrated ballet of data, strategies, emotions, and hard work. What you see on TV screen or from the grandstands is the culmination of this teamwork.
Race teams spend hundreds of hours perfecting each aspect of their competition machine. The effort culminates in two riders going out on track, and using their knowledge of the bike, their talent and experience to pursue the win. When two teammates collaborate to push each other and challenge to raise the bar, the reward is even greater.
At the Qatar Grand Prix - which so far has been the only Grand Prix event of 2020 - we witnessed how the ability to work as a team can make the difference with the two Moto2 Sky VR46 riders Luca Marini and Marco Bezzecchi pushing each other in the practices to improve the lap times.
